3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Amber pour. Lagery scent with honey. Flavor is slightly medicinal, sweetness, Oddish water character, some fruitiness and light booze. Decent. But the american terroir hurts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub -- notes from April 7th, 2011.
Pours a mahogany red-brown with mocha head that leaves nice bits of lace in its wake. Aroma is rich malt and dark bread (pumpernickel-like), with a whiff of leafy hops. Flavor is mostly the same but with a more aggressive hop profile that is a little too strong for the style; toasty-grainy dry aftertaste with medium-body. I’ve had better and I’ve had worse.

On draft at the brewpub. Rye Malty nose. Pours dark brown with almost no head. Smooth medium Malty body. Charred malts toffee and caramel. Bitter and tasty. Dry finish with a good amount of hops. It’s starts to get sweet overtime. But I like the malts a lot. 7/3/8/3/15

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Revolution. Pours a deep amber with a sticky and lasting off white head. Excellent clarity. Nose is a bit subdued, but then starts to come out with some light bready melanoidins. Soft toasty malts and light sweet notes. On taste, moderately sweet and the bittering charge is a touch heavy handed. Nice and rich melanoidin component, Munich fruitiness and very clean. Very well attenuated as well. Just a touch too bitter. Damn fine beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2011 On-tap at the pub.... I hate to say it but this is one of the true disappointments I’ve had from Revolution... The body is dark purplish brown, hardly any head to speak of... The aroma is very bread, dark fruits, figs mostly. Not bad but boring... The taste is just bad, very chemical and harsh with lots of alcohol poking through.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
POurs deep amber/brown hue with nice malt/bread notes. It is a medium bodied beer that shows heavy malt notes throughout and gives a bit of a sweet candy finish. Had at the Brewpub on tap.
